Carbon Balanced Paper

Carbon Balanced Paper offers a simple way for printers, paper makers and distributors to balance the carbon impact of the paper they use through the work undertaken by international conservation charity The World Land Trust (WLT).

Carbon is offset or ‘balanced’ through the purchase and preservation of ecologically endangered forestry under imminent threat of clearance, which then ‘locks’ carbon that would otherwise be released.

As a result of these forests being protected they are able to continue absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. The preservation of high conservation forests also saves threatened habitats and their biodiversity.

The Carbon Balanced Paper project is concentrated specifically in Vietnam, which protects an important area of the Annamite Mountains and, in addition to the carbon benefit, protects many endangered wildlife species found in that area.

Endorsed by the likes of David Attenborough, a patron of WLT, we are proud to be part of this fantastic programme that allows us to contribute to the preservation of the world in which we live.
